Prof Hope Rugo - University of California, San Francisco, USA

Prof Hope Rugo talks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the primary analysis from the phase III randomised SOPHIA trial which compares margetuximab and chemotherapy with FOLFOXIR I in HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer (MBC) after prior anti-HER2 therapies.

She explains that margetuximab is an antibody, novel to HER2, which is designed to activate the immune response, something which is of great importance to trastuzumab efficacy.

Prof Rugo reports that progression free survival was prolonged in patients randomised to receive margetuximab over trastuzumab and, although the difference was small, it was statistically significant.
